The crontab entry:


* 13 * * * root /usr/local/vscanx/vscanx...


will run a crontab entry from 13:00 until 13:59 as the wild card '*' will work for every minute. You probably want:


0 13 * * * root /usr/local/vscanx/vscanx...


to run the command exactly at 13:00 and no other time - otherwise you'll have a really slow machine once you get back from lunch!
